Five new productions to celebrate the return of summer
Opera Holland Park’s 2022 new productions of the classic nineteenth-century tragedies Eugene Oneginand Carmen take us from the palaces of St Petersburg to the streets of Seville. The UK premiere of Mark Adamo’s 1998 opera Little Women leads to progressive New England, where Jo March recalls her first love in the shadow of the American Civil War. A double bill of Delius’s Parisian melodrama Margot la Rouge and Puccini’s Gothic fantasy Le Villi contrasts a crime of passion with supernatural punishment, while a co-production of HMS Pinaforewith Charles Court Opera proves that no one can mock English mores more successfully than the English themselves. The City of London Sinfonia returns as resident orchestra for all five productions.
